It’s easy to miss the Anna Akhmatova Museum, which is tucked away in the sun-lit, green courtyard of Sheremetev Palace. Here you can wander through the rooms where Akhmatova lived, loved, lost and continued to write for nearly 30 years. Akhmatova’s life is well-chronicled in the curatorial notes for the apartment, and the 'White Hall', an interactive room with sounds, manuscripts and electronic screens creates a dynamic stage for the words of the Silver Age muse. But if you do not understand Russian, going through this room might be quite difficult.

Akhmatova’s poetry and personal biography are presented here in a way that creates a context for understanding and reacting to the terrifying years of Stalin’s reign. Don’t forget to check out the museum’s website and brochures for their ongoing readings, concerts and new exhibitions. Audio-guides in English, German, French, Italian and Finnish. Being extremely detailed and useful, they worth your attention and can turn your tour into a quest.

And something else: Joseph Brodsky’s 'American cabinet' is also a part of display in the Akhmatova Museum.
